A castle at Kippo is mentioned in the 16th century however there is now no trace of it.
In the 15th century the lands of Kippo were owned by the Barclay family. James Barclay of Arngask and Kippo died in 1499.
In 1560 William Barclay of Ryn was served heir to his father, Thomas Barclay, in two part of the lands of Pettarty (probably Pitcorthie or Wester Petcorthy rather than Pittarthie) and a fourth part of the lands of Innergelly, receiving a precept of clare constat by David Erskine, Commendator of Dryburgh. William and Thomas are thought to have descended from the Barclays of Kippo.
I have placed the site of the tower of Kippo at Kippo farmhouse, which dates from the late 18th century, pending further research.
